Why can't I get rid of the song in my head?

Someone just sang a stupid song, to himself; he sits next to me at work. Which raises a question: Why do songs get stuck in our brains for days? What is the scientific explanation for this phenomena? Is it an affect of modern life on the individual? Do we fear of loneliness?

Besides therapy, would a life coach help?

i grew up in a home where asking an innocent question such as, "why" resulted in verbal or physical abuse ("why are you so stupid", "don't ask why", and if I did, a hand or a fist would come at me). no surprise that i've also come to realize that I am SO much more insecure than I thought I was. now that I look back, I see that i've never asked the right questions at work, with doctors, or anything like that. My brain would shut down and I would just nod and agree to what I was being told only to think about what happened much later and realize that I should have asked this or that or responded in a certain way. My thought/response patterns have been pretty consistent throughout my life (sad, I know, as I'm nearing 40) and I desperately want to work on communicating better. I struggle to figure out how to say things "nicely" or in a way that's effective as opposed to what often times is more harsh/rude/ineffective. [more inside]

You can have my eyes or my brain, but not both...

They say you should look people in the eyes when you're talking to them. But I'm unable to think while looking another person in the eyes. This leaves me in a position where either 1) I have to look away while I'm thinking/talking, occasionally glancing at the person - which makes me appear shifty; or 2) I look the person in the eyes and stupid or at least ineloquent things come out of my mouth. Can I solve this? Which is the lesser evil? [more inside]
